Joining The Music Group this week are the host of Carpool, Scrapheap Challenge and Kryten in Red Dwarf, Robert Llewellyn; chef, cookery writer and co-founder of fast food chain Leon, Allegra McEvedy and artist, TV director and ex-Slits' guitarist Viv Albertine.

Their choice of music includes a rousing piece of power folk, a personal manifesto for female empowerment and a 1970s tribute to Thirties' night life in Berlin.

Along way we discover out how to bring a machete back from Burma and what aerobics has to do with punk rock. There's some lively disagreement over The X-Factor, militancy and The Woodcraft Folk and a track to which two of the guests can't help but sing along.

The Music Choices are:
Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons
Gloria sung by Patti Smith
Maybe This Time sung by Liza Minnelli from the film Cabaret

Presenter: Phil Hammond
Producer: Tamsin Hughes
A Testbed production for BBC Radio 4.
